Lasers in dentistry allow many dental procedures to be done much more comfortably. Dr. Berkal uses WaterLase which is extremely versatile. It can be used for a wide range of hard and soft tissue procedures, removal of decay, cavity preparation, gum and bone surgical procedures, whitening, and much more. The benefits to our patients are tremendous. Lasers reduce damage to healthy portions of the tooth and minimizes trauma. Many gum procedures are completed with little or no bleeding, less post-operative swelling, and less need for pain medications. Lasers conserves more of the precious tooth structure you were born with, helping you to maintain your natural teeth longer! WaterLase does not generate heat, vibration or pressure therefore, many dental procedures can be performed nearly pain-free with less need for anesthesia.
